Little update from ABC Hurricane in UK

20/03/2015 in General

Due to other events, our blog has been inactive for the last 6-7 weeks and since that time a lot of events happened, like the ongoing hunger strike in Greece by different prisoners, against C TYPE prisons, for the release of CCF family and friends, release of Savvas Xiros, etc.

There’s a hunger strike rebellion taking place right now in the UK immigration detention centres. Race and immigration are hot election topics right now in UK, time to stop fascism! In Bristol, Emma Sheppard got sentenced to two years for sabbing three police cars at new year with home-made stingers. Today there’ll be a demo in Bristol for all the people on hungerstrike in the immigration centres and others. On the 21st there’s an anti-fascist demo in Newcastle against the usual nazi racist bastards. In High Wycombe, after the cops were cleared of killing Habib ‘Paps’ Ullah, there were nights of mass vandalism against the ruling, No Justice – No Peace!

In Cardiff, there’s a demo on March 24th by South Wales anarchists, against ‘Marco’ Jacobs undercover police officer’s abuse and supporting the court date of those who are making a civil action against the UK State about the case. There’s also a demo in London the next day at the Royal Courts of (in)Justice. Statewatch released a PDF about undercover policing worth reading here.

We’re going to be updating our blog a bit more infrequently, as our techie is AWOL, and as a group we’re dispersed and busy ticking over with various projects. We’re working with a few different prisoners at the moment, and it’ll be a case of as and when we have stuff to report and comment on.

Solidarity means attack!

Athens: Demo in solidarity with the hunger strikers in Greek prisons

19/03/2015 in Prison Struggle

On Tuesday evening, March 17th, a demo in solidarity with hunger strikers in Greek prisons was held in downtown Athens. The march of around 1,500-2,000 people started from Monastiraki Square, passed through Athinas and Stadiou Streets, Syntagma Square and ended at Propylaea. After the end of the demo barricades were erected around Exarchia, clashes erupted with cops and luxury cars were set ablaze.

‘Tis the season to fight the prisons… (UK)

06/12/2014 in Prison Struggle

From rabble.org.uk:

The prison population in the UK has doubled over the past 20 years. Check out the series of events coming up in London this month to build prisoner solidarity and resist prison expansion.

First up, on December 9th we’ve got The Politics of Prisons, an event to strategise on how to fight prison & immigration detention expansion, and discuss grassroots alternatives to the police and prisons to deal with problems. Organised by Defend the Right to Protest, the event promises some great speakers.

Then on 15th December there’ll be the first public meeting of an exciting new group, Prison Action London. They’re inviting people to come along to exchange ideas and plans for action. Read the rest of this entry →
